The two rappers will share the stage of London's The Garage, a live music venue on 9 November, followed by a concert at Berlin's Oyoun Cultural Centre on 12 November.

Marwan Moussa, a Cairo-based trap artist, was born in Ismailia and came into the limelight after releasing his famous hit Sheraton in 2020.

He has released two albums, Bel Monasba (2020) and Florida Dark Mode (2022) alongside a few EPs.

Moussa’s song Batal 3alam made it to the 2022 All African Music Awards final list of nominated artists. The results, based on listeners' votes, are set to be revealed in first days of December.

Musician and social media personality Afroto, who born in Alexandria, is of both Egyptian and Brazilian descent.

Afroto attracted audience's attention with his 2020 single Segara, and an even more succesful 2021 single Msh Bel 7ozoz.

Released in 2021 on the artist's official YouTube channel, Msh Bel 7ozoz garnered over 10 million views in the first months, and has almost 20 million views to date.

This was followed by a single Far2 Khebra ("Difference in Experience") released the same year and has over 20 million views until date.

Afroto's other singles also score high with his channel gaining 780,000 subscribers since its launch in 2018.

Both rappers are among the top-listened-to artists in Egypt on global streaming platforms in recent years.

They often perform in the region.

In March 2022 Afroto appeared with two other famous rappers, Wegz and Marwan Pablo, at a big concert in Saudi Arabia at the Riyadh Boulevard venue as part of the Riyadh Season festival.
